Model Supply Loots

Well recently I'd been doing much more modding & detailing on my gunplas. And the only way to get any good results is to get the right tools. Here are some of what I've purchased recently:

G-Temple Chisel Set
I've previously used Mission Model Scribers to scribe my panel linings. But I found those quite clumsy & time consuming to use, since the tools are long and hard to keep a straight line unless I press lots of pressure on the tool, and the panel lines became too deep. But now, at the suggestion of Zeta_pla, I've purchased the G-Temple Chisel Set which is much much eaiser to use. Is shorter and allows a firm grip, the set itself comes with different sizes of chisel for more creativity when doing the panel lines. (Default chisel comes with 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.15mm, 0.3mm)

I've ordered an additional 0. 8 & 1.4 chisel as well. Some had ask how to scribe panel linings, and here is a simple image to show you how.

G-Temple Extension Parts
I ordered these to be used as internal extension for the 2 GN Drives on my HG 00 Raiser, this kit would be attached with the XN-Raiser.

SP Eyes
Got me some SP Eyes, which are circular metal part that can be inserted with a SP Eye Lenses (in various colors) for your usual Zeon mobile suits. I purchased both 4.0mm (MG) & 2.5mm (HG) sizes. Mainly I got these for my MG Sinanju that is on hold right now. One bad news thought, the seller forgot to send me my eye lenses...

G-Temple Head Vulcans
I just got these in case I start building any Gundam / GMs. I will be using them on my MG Sinanju too.

T-Thrusters & G-Thrusters
Never had any experience working with custom thrusters, so I got these to practice. Mainly I plan to use them for my MG Sinanju.
AM Decals
I've grew tired of waiting for MSG decals, which are usually sold out. So I ordered these so that I would have ample supplies of generic decals for my upcoming works.

Aurora Sticker (Cameleon sticker)...I don't know
The owner of MechaShunk was nice enough to include a sample Aurora sticker, which I had inquired about. These aurora sticker is great for the eye piece of the GM or Gundams. And the color of the sticker will change according to the base color of the paint. This will be fun to try.

Zippo Lighter Fluid
This is for making a enamel wash for panel lines & clean ups.

Clear Red Paint
In Los Angeles, is a pain in the behind to find any clear red paints... most everywhere are sold out and doesn't get re-stock. So I ended up just getting a spray can of clear red (last one in store). This will be used for all the clear part on the head for all my 00 gundam kits.
For those who are cares... my finger have gotten better. Just need one more visit to the doctor tommorrow and then I can continue my work on the HG 0 Gundam. More later...
